Who is candy dulfer dating
“Right In My Soul” released in 2003 included a track, “Finsbury Park Café 67” which became a instant hit in the United States, reaching #1.
She performed at the 2004 Grammys with Prince and Beyoncé and played with Prince in New York when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
At the last minute, the opening act was canceled, prompting Candy to send a note to Prince telling him he missed the opportunity to see a girl “play her ass off” on the sax.
Prince apologized and invited her to join him on stage.
When you mention Candy Dulfer to people many of them will tell you that she is the first artist they ever heard play Smooth Jazz.
In a genre dominated by men, Candy holds her own, usually being the solo female onstage. She wails on the saxophone, using it as her voice, and she has strong vocal skills as well.
In 1987, Candy opened for Madonna in what was a much-talked about performance that led to her revamping “Funky Stuff”.
In October of 2000, she released her long-awaited live album that was released on DVD, as well as CD, “Live In Amsterdam”, a mixture of her old classics and a couple of new songs, one of which, a collaboration with Dave Stewart did well, “Synchrodestiny”.
Candy has always possessed a musical maturity that is truly impressive for someone her age.
At 11, she recorded with her father and at 12, she performed at the famous North Sea Jazz Festival with Rosa King, as a member of her ladies horn section.
Candy credits Rosa with teaching her a lot about playing, as well as teaching her about being a bandleader and about the music industry.
She started her own band, “Funky Stuff” when she was only 14, but turned down record deals for years.
